There’s nothing that helps motivate me more than spending a day creating (crafting) with friends.
Yesterday I did just that, spent most of the day crafting away with a group of incredibly fun ladies. Jann, who blogs at jannolson.com played hostess once again, allowing us to make a mess in her home. Bless her heart. I feel so fortunate to have been included among these creative and lovely women. This month it was Shirley fun idea to create some “smashing chics” and a fun mini banner.
Here’s some of our finished creations.
It’s always amazing and fun to see how each project becomes so unique.
And this was just the kick or motivator I needed to finally start dressing my home for Easter.
My little mini banner made a prefect backdrop for an Easter vignette.
I simply tied it to the back of my mirror. And then the inspiration for the rest of the display just fell into place.
I went right outside and cut some branches off a tree to place inside the Easter vase, then hung some vintage paper eggs from the branches.
My little smashing chic looked right at home as well.
This year I get to host Easter brunch.
We decided to fly all our kids home for Easter this year, therefore I decided it would definitely be my turn to host. Along with my family, we will have my parents, as well as my sister’s family over. To say I’m just a little excited is an understatement.
I knew right away I would be using my grandmother’s dessert rose vintage plates (since it took forever for my mother to finally hand them over to me).
Once set the plates out, the tablescape kind of spoke for itself. It just felt right keeping it natural and simple with green plants and succulents.
The only thing I’m still trying to decide on is whether to fill the egg holders with the speckled eggs (which I will adhere their names to) or the carmel filled cadbury eggs? Help me out here dear friends.
Now I’m need to go finish dressing the rest of my home and planning a menu.
As always thanks for dropping by, have a most wonderful day.
